UDOG is the bold new Italian company born from the idea of Alberto Fonte, previously brand manager at fi’zi:k and Sales & Marketing Director at Pinarello and Kask. He’s a passionate cyclist and avid competitor with a true love for the sport. After fifteen years in the industry working for some of the most iconic brands in cycling, Alberto decided to create a new and unique brand. The name UDOG stands for Underdog, the English expression that identifies an athlete in competition who is popularly expected to lose, but everyone roots for, and on their day can cause an upset and win against the odds. The Underdog – UDOG – seeks to prove that, with a drive to succeed and hard work, anyone can achieve their goals in cycling as in life. We are all Underdogs, UDOG is for all of us.
Konggaard has for 20 years been a supplier of quality cycling clothing and accessories for clubs, companies and bicycle shops with the brand Xtreme. From 1st of January 2022, Klaus Nielsen and Christian Poulsen joined as co-owners of Konggaard. Since then, several high-end brands have been added and lately UDOG. More brands will be presented shortly.
